1983 Draft

Postby indysteel » Fri May 30, 2008 11:20 pm

Everyone knows we passed up Marino in the 1983 draft. I was looking at that year's overall draft and, while hindsight is always 20/20, this is what could have been. In constructing the below, I only selected from players that were "still on the board" and I assumed that the other teams selections remained unchanged.

Keep in mind that the 1983 team still had talent -- but many were getting older. Also, this is position independent. Merely looking to see who we could selected versus who we actually did. Looking at the actual draft I have to say it was pathetic.

1/21 -- Marino (27th to the Fins) Gabe Rivera
